The Hike-A-Thon will be a virtual event this year.

Group hike the Lake George Land Conservancy's beautiful trails at the Hike-A-Thon!

Lake George Land Conservancy's Hike-A-Thon showcases their parks and preserves by holding large group hikes and paddles on the same day every summer. Due to the pandemic and focus on individual outings, the 2020 Hike-A-Thon will be a virtual event.

We know that this is disappointing; we are disappointed as well. But, after considering multiple factors, it’s the best decision we can make at this time. The Hike-A-Thon was on route to be the largest, most exciting Hike-A-Thon yet. And it still can be—with your help! We encourage everyone—registered or not—to participate. With your cooperation, we can still make this a great event. Here's how you can participate:

  • Go outside on July 5th to enjoy an outing on your own -  This may be in your own backyard, a local park, or other favorite hike or paddle. If social distancing protocols are still in place, please continue to be safe and choose a destination that is local to you, and avoid crowds. 
     
  • Show your Hike-A-Thon pride! - Wear a t-shirt from a past Hike-A-Thon or this year’s. This year’s shirt, as well as past years’, will also available to purchase via lglcstore.myshopify.com. Orders must be placed by June 5th for delivery by July 1st. 
     
  • Share a selfie or two on Facebook or Instagram - Use the hashtag #LGHikeAThon2020 and be sure to let us know where you are and who you’re with. Follow us @HikeLakeGeorge and @LakeGeorgeHikeAThon. Not on social media? No problem! Email pictures to shoffman@lglc.org.
